Hey guys welcome back to the channel hope everything is going great today.

I am showing you guys how to do a print and cut in Cricut design space.

So right now, I am pulling up design space.

This is how it looks when you first saw no we're gonna go and create a new project.

I had already started so I hate the place to empty my space.

What you're, gonna do is upload your design and if you already don't have the uploader you're gonna click on right there is it a little image.

I already have upload it, so we're gonna rock with that and we're gonna.

Do Rugrats I have some work that bows in my shop, so I made a matching shirt.

This image was purchased off of xes sublimation print, so this is like super clear.

It looks just as clear on the shirt like it's popping out.

Okay, so up here, I am sizing it and you can change the width and the height.

You also can just grab the arrow down here, that's done by the wheel and make it bigger or smaller.

So, when I go ahead and hit make it once I get it my desired size and, as you can see, it was to be print cut, has to be eight by living, but you also have to have that border around it.

I resized it and we're gonna go ahead and print.

You can mirror image.

Some people want to do printing cut, they mirror their image I'm, not a fan of that.

It doesn't work for me.

So we'll hit continue.

You can see here that we're gonna send it to the printer up.


You can see that I am connected via bluetooth to the Cricut maker, you're gonna select your printer I have too many for no reason and we're gonna go ahead print you can leave the bleed on.

Take bleed off.

Alright assume did enough for you guys to see the difference, but it makes a difference.

We're gonna, hit print and need to bleed the one I'm gonna come back after is off the printer, see alright.

So right here you see this light blinking for you to go ahead and feed your mat into your maker.

I have painters tape down because I make bows.

Oh well now we're gonna hit the cut button to start it cutting, but yeah I had the painter take down, because my mat for one I didn't know.

One came for two I use painters tape to hold down I felt, for my bowls also don't put the tape on the black line around their box.

That outline is what is registering right now.

Right now is not cutting is registering those marks, so they can cut it perfectly yeah this what's going on here, and this takes a while.

It's almost done, though.

Okay, so once it's all done, you're going to unload your machine, you gonna take your paper off.

Okay, so I don't have anything to hold my phone.

What do you guys use drop that below of the link the title cuz I can't hold my phone, and also this is just ridiculous um, so you're actually gonna see me.

Do this with one hand like a and as it closely you can see the bleed? That's right, Angelica's, hair these the black borders right now, you can you see my ass backwards, so waiting with one yeah.

Okay, first of all, is blue.

My nails on twenty knows your mother and I mean second of all.

I use a exacto knife.

Sweet is old, I've had about like three four years.

So it's not that sharp, but don't do that, use the creaking tools.

If you just start now, because you can cut yourself any time you can drop the and it'll go right through it, like it'd, be very careful with the exacto knife.

Okay use your Cricut tool, don't be, like me, be better than me: okay I got it, but then man- man, oh man, okay, so um, I'm, gonna, weed out these little pieces that live depending on your image.

You might have more, you might have less, it all depends or your image that you're reading I'm just taking out little black spots and white spots that I see because I want this image to look like it's popping out.

The shirt I have a trash can over to the side for my camp okay.

So this is our image, is gonna, be on a shirt and I am actually going to peel this off off screen because I peel it off one of my friends.

She says she leaves her phone.

She wears the image and goes from there.

You see my shirt now getting ready to prep, which I do go over it with the cricket.

First heat it up and get the wrinkles out and I also have my Teflon shoot, so you gonna need it for parchment paper.

Okay, so here you can see me just kind of prepping the shirt I don't feel like yeah I, just knock all the wrinkles out and get the shirt warmed up.

Okay I also have a creaky bass under it, so it doesn't go through and then I carefully.

Lady me Johnny when I know that everything is in place.

Nobody hand is a bunch of somebody's hand, like you see how those wheels are turning because once it gets warm, it starts to take shape.

Okay, so I started rolling up, as you can see that wheel there, okay, so once you get it all out, you get to the top on paper.

We put that on top, that's just a heap rotating it to not burn the shirt in the design and we're gonna go ahead and press that I use a creepy, easy press mini, because all these t-shirts I think I have it on 316 for 29 seconds smoothie 30 seconds, it's a creepy buddy and a private person just on the unique feeling they say you apply pressure the whole time the timer is on again.

I am holding this because s backwards and I don't have something.

There were a whole different.

You know held it again in economies, leave what you guys use to hold your phone okay, so it's hyper went off.

You can see the steam coming off of it.

Peel it up carefully in case.

Something is on all the way down.

You don't want to rip it and have to start over um.

Take it off, let it cool down a little bit and then you know we get into it.

Come on now that I, fixed Angelica's hair, you guys can see it a little bit.

Curled up I went back over as of the video.
